Appropriate: The Houses of Joseph Esherick
Joseph Esherick was arguably the foremost San Francisco architect from the 1960s until his death in the late 1990s, following in the wake of William Wurster. Esherick established his own practice in the late 1940s and the firm produced a continuous stream of laudable buildings, among them houses appropriate to their site and time. Affected less by national and international fashion than by the exigencies of local climate, social demands, and suitable technology, Esherick produced a large number of truly classic residences.
